God, those guys look just like Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne. The resemblance is uncanny.

Is Batman going to come away with a broken jaw being held by Supes like that?

The next in the series is a blurry shot depicting someone getting stabbed in the back with a kryptonite knife.

Superman has great teeth. Are human bacteria no match for his super-gums?

Is the next one going to be of them and their new Chocolate Lab?

A couple of years ago some gays wearing superhero shiat had a orgy in Detroit. It was posted on reddit's front page.

Still not as great as the variant cover of Spiderman featuring my favorite comic shop's billboard and a Halifax landmark.

... OK, got no problems with this.

I have no problem with the cape and tights books finally realizing that they'll never be serious literature and rolling with it, there's a reason that the silver age comics are still relatively enjoyable and pretty much nobody even remembers the '90s deconstructive grimdark crap even remotely fondly.

// Batman and Superman being buddies and just farking around occasionally or pulling pranks on each other was one of the few things that made them interesting characters through periods where their main storylines were, frankly, incredibly dull.  It's also pretty much the only thing that's ever moved a Justice League book... well, the heroes being friendly and lightening up, not Batman and Superman's bromance specifically.

This. You see this? All of it.

There have been plenty of much worse comic book covers.

That being said, the concept is kind of stupid.  Granted, its been almost ten years since I bought a comic book, but from what I remember both characters would consider something like this kind of a complete waste of time.

Judging from the super-nipples, Kara must have just flown in from the Fortress of Solitude.

It's to the left of spider man's armpit.

I remember the 90's comics very fondly. Of course I was born in 85 so that could be part of it. It's only been in the last 6 months that I've gotten back into the comics after an easy 15 years away. I have a 5 year old son which means I get to revisit all this stuff. I will say that the comics I've read made in the 00s just blow away most of the 90s and a good chunk of the 80s. Atleast until that new 52 crap.

Again, seeing Superman and Batman stop being whiny bastards and indicate a real connection with another human being that doesn't directly involve violence or maintaining a secret identity is pretty much the only reason anyone has ever bought a Justice League book.

Their relationship has been based on basically each thinking the other was cool and just wanting to hang out pretty much from day one, and goofy shiat was traditionally kind of the hallmark of their crossovers.  I mean, realistically there aren't really any situations where one of the pair wouldn't render the other's contribution redundant (superpowers > kung fu, actual detective skills > plot-dependent super-intelligence), they're literally going out of their way to work together for the sheer hell of it.

The primary inspiration for how the relationship was written was literally a comedy movie (The Odd Couple).  This is why the relationship mysteriously faded away in the 1990s when everything had to be grimdark, and it was mostly Superman getting case-files in the mail or some boring crap like that.

// Even the original grimdark Batman in Miller's TDKR dedicated part of his master thanatos gambit to basically farking with Superman in a somewhat mean-spirited (that version of Batman was a dick) but ultimately non-harmful manner.  Maybe unintentionally hilarious, because Miller is insane and probably thinks a lot of stupid things are serious, but still  hilarious.

I'm sorry you spent your 90s buying Bloodshot: Warpouches comics. Meanwhile, we were enjoying great stuff like Preacher, Animal Man, Sandman, Morrison's JLA, Astro City, Kingdom Come, Mark Waid's Flash, Flex Mentallo, Death of the Endless, Superman: For All Seasons, Batman: The Long Halloween, etc.

See the image? More proof that Superman is better than Batman.

He's forcing Batman to smile!! There's nothing Batman can do to prevent it.

Face it, BatTards, one rare weakness versus being human? There's no debate or situation that can counter this fact. Why you guys can't see it amazes me.

Take a deep breath you guys. It's OK, we'll take care of you like the innocent children you are.

This is the perfect image to illustrate why I hate the manga style face (not to mention the chibi crap). Realistic everything else, then you get to Supergirl's face and she looks like she's descended from a half-rat, half-human species of aliens.

Just say no to manga-face.

Nothing could cause a cavity for Superman.

Of course, if he needed braces, I think he'd be SOoL too.  Unless they had a little Crytopnyte in them.

I've always hated the Manga style.  Its always been a rather conformist philosophy. It tries to make sure the show will go on exactly as planned if an individual illustrator leaves.

Yeah, I've been kind of interested in reading All You Need is Kill, but looking at the previews in Comixology, I'm really turned off by the magna character designs. If it is anything like Edge of Tomorrow, those overly cute character designs just don't fit the tone of the story at all.
